Re: TXP 4.6.2 to 4.8.3

Unfortunately, reducing the need for plugins reduces the number of active plugin writers too.

Plugins are normally written to enhance TXP, but over time, those enhancements make it into the core. This is why there are so many orphaned plugins. Not to mention doing an update to TXP, plugins make it a more difficult process and at times impossible until the plugin is updated.

I’m a minimalist by nature, if I wasn’t, I would not be on this forum and I’d be over at WP.org. So by nature, I try to work with what’s in the core, which gave me a huge insight to TXP Tags, the most powerful and elegant set of tags in CMS land. I’ve used Expression Engine, which I also rank as having great tags, and I would still be using EE if the lead developer wasn’t such a dick.

No, I don’t dislike Plugins, I’d just rather do it with Tags :)

Re: TXP 4.6.2 to 4.8.3

Just went to Expression Engine, they Open Sourced it on 11/2018

As for Rick Ellis being a dick, me and him got into a tussle about Open Source on their forums. He put down Open Source, saying his closed development environment was better than an open concept.

But now he’s all in on Open Source, what a dick.
